In her talk she will discuss how digital approaches are changing our understanding of the history of travel—focusing specifically on the 18th-century Grand Tour, when tens of thousands of Northern Europeans traveled to Italy. She will ask how new technologies might help us to get beyond the best-known, largely elite Grand Tourists, whose accounts have dominated the understanding of this influential touristic phenomenon, and encourage us to pose new questions about this historically significant world of travel.
